UFC 110 Bonuses Announced

This past Saturday night is one Australian George Sotiropoulos is unlikely to ever forget. Not only did the slick grappler take home a unanimous decision win over highly ranked lightweight Joe Stevenson in front of his countrymen at UFC 110, Sotiropoulos also did his part in helping earn “Fight of the Night” honors along the way. As a result he and Stevenson both netted an additional $50,000 for their efforts. Also procuring $50,000 bonuses at the event were undefeated heavyweight Cain Velasquez and Ultimate Fighter Season 4 finalist Chris Lytle.

Velasquez, who can no longer be discounted as a legitimate contender after finishing Rodrigo “Minotauro” Nogueira in the first round of their headlining bout, won “Knockout of the Night” courtesy of some devastating ground-and-pound after a crisp combo left the iconic Brazilian reeling. Meanwhile, Lytle’s stomach-turning kneebar of Brian Foster was named “Submission of the Night”.

The above bonus information was originally reported by MMAJunkie.

    props to George, he deserved the pay day

  • Angry Mike says:

    So did Lytle. That knee bar was a reminder that he’s a well rounded fighter and not just a brawler.

  • Connor Cobain says:

    This is bullshit! Wanderlei and Bisping were way more of a fight of the night performance.

  • hindsightufuk says:

    i thought George/Joe was a way better fight technically, standing and of course some awesome BJJ/grappling. hugely entertaining too

    Good card (B). Lytle earned the sub of the night. That was viscious!!!

    Also, I’m reconsidering who the top HW is: I’ve been on the Dos Santos bandwagon for a long time, but I think Cain is the man. Well-rounded, good hands, power, and ground game.

    Cain is strong. He picked up Ben Rothwell as if Ben weighed 170. Then he flatten Big Nog. His strikes were dead on when he pounced to finish.

    War Cain taking the belt from Brock!!

    Very impressed with George’s Bjj. Some of the best I’ve seen in a while considering Stevenson was his opponent. He has that wirey frame that suits the art so well, much like the Diaz bros.
    Cain was the other big winner on this card. I did doubt his cred as he had only faced one or two other good fighters let alone a great one. But now he has a legit claim to considered one of the sports top contenders with an impressive victory over one of the sports true greats, standing up too.
    I would like to see Carwin justify his (unjustified) top 10 ranking next. Carwin is ranked above Werdum, a guy who has 2 wins over Carwin’s only notable victory, Gonzaga aswell as wins over Big Foot, Aleks, Vera and Overeem?. I don’t understand the way rankings work. Why rank them so highly before they have even faced more than 1 notable fighter?. At least it will keep people interested when the rankings change constantly, which will undoubtably happen using that method.

    Nice to see George get some main card time finally, and a pretty good night of fights. Cant wait to see who they give to George next. Anybody who handles Joe like that deserves a step up for sure. Bisping vs Silva was pretty tense but technically George vs Stevenson was way better.

    I wonder if Chris Lytle just accounts for the Fight Night Bonus income before he even fights- seems like he gets them consistently
